yes they do exist (but not without human intervention).<br><br>
Anyone heard about the Liger cubs born in China? Their mom left them so they're nursing from a dog lol. Why do people intervene and mess w/ nature...<br><br><a href="http://bcove.me/xyuukoxa" target="_blank">http://bcove.me/xyuukoxa</a><br><br>
"The liger is a cat born from the breeding of a <i>male lion</i> and a <i>female tiger</i>. This combination produces an offspring with more lionistic features than if the reverse pairing had occured. That would produce a more tigeristic creature known as a tigon. Both are members of genus <i>Panthera</i>.There is no scientific name assigned to this animal because of it’s human assisted ancestory." -liger.org

Tigers, a critically endangered species, have only so many viable breeding years, and yet some people would rather cross breed them with lions to produce an infertile and sickly hybrid called a liger.<br><br>
Okay class, can anyone raise their hands and tell Mr. James why this is messed up?

I wonder what kinds of weird creations they will have at zoos by the time I have kids and they grow up.

They are beautiful, but that is not a good enough reason to bring someone into the world for a life of captivity and early death <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

I find it very interesting that swapping the male and female creates different looks. also both ligers and tigons are stunning. however wtf man? if youre going to mess with nature for breeding purposes, can you do it with endangered species please?!

It's like breeding horses with donkeys, I think. In Germany the offspring has a different name, either Maultier or Muli, depending on whether the mother or the father was a horse.
